LAS VEGAS – J.B. Mauney already knew he had clinched the 2015 World Championship when he entered the bucking chute aboard Bruiser in the Thomas & Mack Center at the Built Ford Tough World Finals. 

Joao Ricardo Vieira and Kaique Pacheco had not secured enough world standings points in Round 4, and were mathematically eliminated from being able to overtake Mauney. 

That didn’t stop Mauney from adding an exclamation point to his second PBR World Championship, as he rode Bruiser for 92.75 points to win Round 4, earning 200 world standings and wrapping up the title.

The 28-year-old from Mooresville, North Carolina, becomes the fifth rider in PBR history to win multiple world titles and is the first rider to surpass $6 million in career earnings.
